About TPE

Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) are a copolymer mixture of a rubber and a plastic and exhibit properties of both materials. TPEs require virtually no compounding, reinforcing agents, stabilizers or curing agents, providing consistent batch to batch properties. When extruded into tubing, the material is translucent, flexible, resists kinking, making it ideally suited for pumping and fluid transfer applications.
